Q&A with Shannon K. Bradshaw

What made you decide to be a BankSouth Loan Officer?

I believe my career chose me. I graduated with a degree in marketing and journalism at UGA. In 2004, I was hired to help a group of mortgage originators market their services to prospective clients and referral partners. I quickly learned the mortgage/home financing language. Understanding the basics of originating a loan was a milestone. Working with this group pulled me into the industry to help people navigate a process they could not otherwise access on their own. The ability to communicate is an essential skill for my chosen field. The desire to help people has always been my calling.

What are some significant drivers that motivated you to learn your profession?

  1. The impact I can have on a current or future homeowner’s financial future.
  2. The importance of creative strategy in an ever-changing industry.
  3. The opportunity to work with so many amazing people from all backgrounds and careers.

Who is someone you admire and why?

My dear friend Elizabeth was diagnosed with appendiceal cancer in July 2019. This extremely rare form of cancer affects 1-2 people per million each year. Elizabeth’s diagnosis was the result of self- advocacy in the face of misdiagnosis. Once diagnosed, she was told she would need to undergo “the mother of All Surgeries”. Elizabeth is a mother of two boys and manages a full-time career as an attorney. She fought HARD… and she won. Elizabeth is grateful for every single day of life. Her strength and resilience embody the everyday “Super Woman”.

Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up? Why?

At the age of 10, I viewed the world through the eyes of Walt Disney. The magic, the stories, the lessons all resonated with me. I was convinced I would use my creative talents as a Disney animator.

Mortgage Market Interest Rates

Interest rates for mortgages can vary significantly from one borrower to the next based on the specific details of the transaction. Some of the main factors that affect the interest rate are credit score, down payment or loan-to-value, the type of mortgage, and how long the interest rate is locked.

The information below depicts average rates on a national level. These rates are not specific to BankSouth Mortgage but are provided to give a general idea of where rates are nationally for different loan types. This information is calculated from actual locked rates with customers across 35% of all mortgage transactions nationwide.

This is not a commitment to lend and does not guarantee the availability of any particular product or interest rate. Rates/terms illustrated in the chart may not be available through BankSouth Mortgage. Rates and information in this chart are powered by OBMMI™ (“Optimal Blue Mortgage Market Indices”). The OBMMI™ methodology takes the average rate of all appropriate interest rates locked through the Optimal Blue, LLC (“Optimal Blue”) product and pricing engine (“PPE”) on a given day. No adjustments to the rates that account for buy-up or buy-down decisions made by individuals are performed. These indices leverage data from Optimal Blue PPE lock requests (approximately 35% of all locks nationwide) aggregated daily and updated nightly with the previous day’s locks.

Shannon & Katie have been more than amazing. Home buying is not an easy process but they made it easy for us. I would have been extremely stressed and overwhelmed without their guidance. 10/10 would recommend.

Reply from Shannon K. Bradshaw
Thank you for this kind review. I am so glad you found a better home and space for your needs. Even better, I saw your townhome is already setup to be sold. Your trust in my guidance from the initial planning and consult to the "hit the ground running" contract to close means a lot to me as an advisor. I wish you and Ruthi all the best in the years to come and in your new home.

Thank you for your kind words, Lance. Even more, thank you for being a wonderful client and trusting me for a third time with your financing. I know this was a big move for you and Lynne. Atlanta will miss you. But you will never be far away. Enjoy the life in Colorado! I will be reaching out as soon as I see new opportunities for you.

If we could choose Shannon over and over again we would. We worked with Shannon on our new home build and as first time home buyers we knew absolutely nothing. By the end of the entire journey it felt like we were mortgage experts. Shannon and her team take the time to get to know you as a person, know your needs and develop a relationship that benefits everyone involved. Shannon always made herself available no matter the circumstance and has truly become a friend. We can’t thank her and her team enough for how smooth and easy the entire process was. If you told me home buying would be hard I’d tell you you were lying. Shannon made it as easy as pie!
Reply from Shannon K. Bradshaw
Paris - I love this review so much! I would choose you over and over again too. You and James are truly two of a kind in the best possible balance of amazing people. And now we get to have one more of you! I am so excited for you both! New home. New Family! Sending all the best!

Thank you for this kind review, Ed. I realize you are probably ready to not have any loan related tasks to complete... HA! But seriously, I appreciate you taking time to acknowledge my efforts. I enjoyed working with you along your path to closing. And we are most certainly going to work together again. Please enjoy your holiday week and I wish you all the best in your new home!
